I think this is a nice EV who can afford it.
I don't think people who buy EVs currently are worried about the comparison between it and a gasoline version.
They are not selling in large volume, it is to promote consumer interest and fund electric R&D/technology.
No one who are interested in it are doing all the calculations you guys are doing, If you are then it wasn't for you.
People who are going to purchase one are not poor and not struggling to maximize fuel savings. They want something fresh, clean, and the idea behind it.
